    Community Action Nepal (CAN) is a UK based charity whose aim is to help the mountain people of Nepal. Founded by Doug Scott CBE, who in 1975 made the first British ascent of Everest, CAN is supported by mountaineers and mountain-lovers from across the globe. CAN's Kathmandu office and Nepali staff make our projects happen on the ground. Funds are raised from donations, fundraising events, sales of Nepali goods, grants and Doug Scott's lecture tours.

Help us achieve our fundraising target of £2 million for reconstruction of projects following the events earlier this year.

The Nepal Earthquake – 6 Months On

25 October marks the six month anniversary of the first large earthquake in Nepal in 2015. It was the worst natural disaster to hit the country since the great earthquake of 1934. This has been going off the news radar and out of people’s minds, crowded out by other world events. The monsoons are nearly over and reconstruction is starting at our projects in Nepal.

Supporting CAN’s work and Nepal by attending our events – run by mountaineers to support the mountain people of Nepal – is as important as ever. And you will have a good time whilst you are about it!
